JANUARY POTLUCK


“SLOW IT, SPREAD IT, SINK IT: Restoring the Flow of Our Community Waters”
Saturday, January 24th @ 3pm

Water is the foundation of life, yet each year Los Angeles pours millions and millions of gallon of pure rainwater down the drain. How can that water be captured, stored and used? How can we recycle used water? Melanie Winters, director of the non-profit coalition WATER LA will show us how she uses Urban Acupuncture to restore ecosystems and grow food with the right water moves.

Pre-Registered: $12

Saturday, February 28 @ 3pm
